RIO TURBIO



SKIING IN VADELEN
Just 4 km away from Rio Turbio, tourists can visit "Mina 1", the international border crossing which connects Rio Turbio with the city of Puerto Natales in Chile. In the area, people can appreciate beautiful "lenga" forests, surrounded by majestic hills and steep gullies.

There, visitors will find an integration and leisure center: "Vadelén" Winter Sports Center ("Valle de Lengas"), where they will be able to practice either Alpine or Nordic skiing in three different runs, suitable for beginner and advanced skiers and for slalom competitions.

In Vadelén, you will have the opportunity to ski in one of the smallest areas in South America, on three runs, one of which has night-time lightning to practice during the hours of darkness.

One of these appealing runs is 500m long and has a slope of 19°, which allows to keep the snow (fine-dust-like) from April to September.
The other runs have slopes of 38° and a length of 250m, and they are appropriate for beginners as well as for more advanced skiers. The total skiing surface adds up to 100 hectares and the utmost height is of 850m.

You can get to the top of the run by ski-lift or double elevator, rising to a height of 1000 m and with a capacity to carry 400 skiers per hour.

It is important to bear in mind that it is forbidden to get away from the signaled circuits, since it is really difficult to move around the copious "lenga" forest.

In "Mina 1", travelers can also stop by the Municipal hostel, offering shelter in its cabin-like building for tourists and delegations who visit this peaceful region in order to enjoy the numerous activities offered there.


THE SOUTHERNMOST TRAIN IN THE WORLD
The industrial branch-line Rio Turbio is an authentic historical and cultural patrimony. The slow, but lengthy narrow-gauge trains with as many as 60 wagons connect this mining and tourist center near the Andes with the port of Río Gallegos in Argentino Sea.

The train, which circulates along narrow gauges, is pulled by means of diesel engines. Until 1997, steam engines were used but nowadays they are kept in the company's warehouses with chances of recovery of at least two of them. The train is only for industrial use.

Both the railroads and the engines are for the exclusive use of the company's concessionaire.
